Jake Gyllenhaal, time to dance

Jake Gyllenhaal's acting in the music video for The Shoes' "Time To Dance" (directed by Daniel Wolfe, produced by "Blue Valentine"'s Lynette Howell) may be his best in years. The video is below.

The premiere of "Time to Dance" marks the latest from the YouTube's Noisey music channel, which made its debut in February with M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls" and  VICE-produced A$AP Rocky video, "Wassup." In "Time To Dance," a psycho killer (Gyllenhaal) chases his victims all over the city to bring each their gruesome demise. The Shoes returned to Wolfe, who directed their "Stay the Same" video last year.
